From GERMANY- Last Monday saw the largest weekly anti-Islam protest to date in Dresden, which included a moment of silence for those murdered in France. On Tuesday night there were tolerance and religious freedom vigils in Germany organized by Muslim groups and attended by German politicians. A survey was taken to learn more about PEGIDA, the anti-Islamic movement in Dresden. France greatly increased police and troops on the street. On Wednesday French authorities arrested more than 50 citizens for hate speech and anti-semitism, while the latest edition of Charlie Hebdo saw sales spike from 60,000 to 5 million. The Cameroonian army killed more than 140 Boko Haram fighters who entered from Nigeria. The UN Human Rights commissioner has condemned civilian killings by Boko Haram fighters in Nigeria. Amnesty International released satellite photos of Nigerian areas attacked by Boko Haram.
From CUBA- The former mayor of the Mexican city where the 43 students were disappeared has been formally charged with kidnapping. The Parliament in France voted to extend airstrikes against IS forces in Iraq. Witnesses in Syria say a US airstrike in Syria killed 50 civilians. There were protests inside the US Congress demanding the prosecution of Dick Cheney and CIA officials involved in torture. The next day protestors move to the front of Cheney's house.
From RUSSIA- A discussion of President Putin's recent speech which denounced US actions in breach of international law, which was not reported in Western media.
From JAPAN- Deadly fighting is escalating in the east of Ukraine, with 4800 people killed so far. Tokyo is establishing a fund to promote the use of hydrogen as an energy source. The Japanese government plan to build an intermediate storage facility for radioactive waste from Fukushima is set to move ahead. NHK did surveys on amendments to the Japanese constitution, new policies allowing "collective self-defense," and restarting nuclear power plants. North Korea again urged the US to cancel joint military drills with South Korea, and continues to deny hacking into the Sony cyber space.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at  http://radio.mediageek.net

All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via <  http://www.kzyx.org >

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)
